Hot off the heels of his highly acclaimed ‘Collapse EP’ with Danny Serrano on Leena, Alexander Aurel gets set to unleash his potent ‘Fall In Love EP’ for Nick Curly’s and Gorge, 8bit Records. ‘Fall In Love’ is ripe with Alexander’s bubbling Tech style, where an infectious carbonated bass groove pirouettes over a giant helping of Aurel beat science, laced with haunting synth stabs and a sublime spoken word. ‘Go To Sleep’ comes loaded with a menacing bass growl and contorted vocals, as Alexander toys with the intensity to create insane tension filled moments for the dance floor. Closing out the package with a bang,’Those Days’ entrance is moody and percussive before giving way to a euphoric melodious hook before jumping back into the groove.

Germany’s Alexander Aurel’s sound crosses a wide musical spectrum, transcending the percussive, the melodic and the damn right groovy! His early beginnings include a long-term residency at the famous U60311 in Frankfurt, along with his residency at Electric Grooves at Tanzhaus West Frankfurt and the ‘Großstadtliebe-Openairs’. Alexander is currently resident for the hip ‘As You Like it’ events in Frankfurt, where he plays together with DJ Karotte, as well as guesting at events such as the Rave On Snow Festival, Watergate Berlin, Tanzhaus West Frankfurt, Romy S Stuttgart, Harry Klein Munich, Kater Blau Berlin, Distellery Leipzig and Thai Break, among others. Alexander also dedicates precious time in the studio for his productions, making his debut release back in 2010 with ‘Funk That EP’ on Frequenza Limited. His musical works have since graced cutting edge underground dance labels such as Mobilee, Terminal M, 8bit, Frequenza and he recently reached top 20 in the Beatport Tech House Chart and has remained for 6 weeks in the TOP 100 with his ‘Collapse EP’ on Leena Music. With his foot firmly on the gas for 2017, Alexander has a busy release ahead with new releases forthcoming on Eat And Beat, 8bit, RYM, Material, Lauter Unfug and My Favourite Freaks Music.
